THz has been shown to be useful for a wide range of applications, such as inspection of finished products or materials, quality control, biomedical imaging and diagnostics, counterfeit detection, characterisation of semiconductors and photovoltaic materials. Terahertz offers capabilities that in many cases cannot be matched by competing technologies, thus making new sensing applications possible.
Terahertz radiation for analysing photovoltaic materials
Precision testing and analysis methods are a great advantage in the research and development of materials, cells, modules and systems suitable for photovoltaics. The availability of the best methods for measuring, characterising, testing and standardising them is in fact crucial to the success of research and development projects. Many materials, especially silicon and most semiconductors, [...]
